GoTeam Toronto, Canada July 1-8
Toronto is the most diverse city in the world.  A city that comes with its own set of challenges, but that also makes it unique. On every street you will find many cultures represented. Persons from India, the Middle East, Japan, France, Denmark, Canada, and even a few Americans can be seen when you look around. With the wide range of cultures, comes an even more wide range of religious differences. You will see an abundance of Muslims, Hindus, Tibetans, and Catholics, but very few evangelicals. Of the 2.4 million people that live in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) an estimated 2.3 million of them are lost in their religion and separated from a relationship with Jesus Christ.

In previous summer projects, Saline Baptist Association has partnered with Rendezvous Church in Toronto and church planter Scott Rourke, to put on a week long day camp for the kids in the city. IBSA, under the leadership of Ryan Beck, is partnering with the church planter Scott Rourk for the 2017 project. We are building a team to lead a soccer ministry in the morning and Vacation Bible School in the afternoon. We are looking for volunteers who not only have skills in soccer or a desire to lead in VBS, but who also desire to work among many different cultures.

Applicants must be high school students who have completed 8th grade. Adult and college age participants are welcome to join this project as well. All applicants must have a valid US passport in hand by February 1, 2017.

Team Leader: Ryan Beck

IBSA will once again be sending Scott Slone to lead a GoTeam to Jamaica. This team will serve with and through local churches throughout Jamaica.

The team will be lodging and eating meals together in a local guest house. They will also participate in local church services on Sunday.

This mission trip is designed for students who enjoy working with children. The students will need to be flexible and be able to be led in a team atmosphere. Jamaica is very hot during the summer and there is a requirement to dress nicely during ministry times. The students will be working most of the day in ministry activities.

Applicants must be high school students who are 15 years old. Adult and college age participants are welcome to join this project as well. All applicants must have a valid US passport in hand by February 1, 2017.
